Polish Pickup is launching a sister site! This will feature indie items in addition to nail polish related things all relating to the voted on theme. If you read my series before this post (Parts I-IV) then all of those products will be featured on the PPU site. These items, will launch on August 17th.
Demiflux: You’re Turning Violet, Violet
Official description: The gem faceted cabochon in this pendant is painted with a mix of UP (unicorn pee is what we call it in the indie nail polish world) and flakies. The UP shfits from a reddish orange to yellow to green and the flakies shift from pink to green. The background is a bright violet color. The pendant measures about 30mm wide to about 35mm tall. The cabochon is 25mm wide and 18mm tall. Behind the tiny iridescent lavender stone there is a hole through the top of the pendant to string your favorite chain through. The hole measures 3-4mm wide and should be large enough for most chains to fit though.
Inspiration: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory- Inspired by the scene where Violet insists on sampling the 3-course dinner gum in the 1971 musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. She eventually turns into a violet colored blueberry when she gets to the dessert phase of the gum.
The giant cabochon is loaded with pee! I was so miffed that I couldn’t catch that green shift in it. I wore it with a slightly thicker silver chain to give a better idea of the size. The opening for the chain is actually quite large, as long as you’re not using a massive 90’s style chain (you know which ones I’m talking about lol) you’ll be good to go!
Cuticula: scented nail tape in snozberries
Official description: Inspiration: Willy Wonky and the Chocolate factory
When I test nail art stuff- I really like to run it through a gauntlet. I used the tape here in a glitter gradient where I sponged the hell out of large ridiculous glitter to see if the tape will hold up and peel away with all that weight on it. It did! Very minimal cleanup afterwards, and it did not shred while I was pulling up. Nail art geeks, this is for you! The scent is fantastic and very interesting… I smell berries, strawberries to be exact with a fresh note. Like a very crisp berry smell. It’s sweet, but crisp. Does that make sense? I love when makers want to hear thoughts on scents, so that’s my description and I’m sticking with it!
So satisfying and cleaned up!
Last, but certainly not least is a super squishy adorable kitty keychain from B Polished! It comes in an adorable mesh baggy and is a sturdy, but satisfyingly squishy little thing! It’s a charcoal black color full of sparkles and flakes.
I’d describe the squishy-ness as a satisfying medium squish! It’s got a lot of give when you squeeze it and goes right back to the original shape when released. This is so adorable. It’s easy to clean too, if you get any lint on it, just rinse it with water and let it dry, then you’re good to go!
Indie Pickup will launch August 17 through August 20th. Indie Pickup is a spin off of Polish Pickup, it will have loads of bath and body, scented waxes, makeup items, and other wonderful hand crafted items! I encourage you to join the Facebook group so you can see peeks at the other amazing items being offered this month. IPU will launch on its own site.
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
